  2. b a boundary between two air masses of different density, moisture, or temperature
  3. c the movement of a fluid, caused by differences in temperature, that transfers heat from one part of the fluid to another
  4. d an instrument used to determine the direction that the wind is blowing
  5. e an instrument that measures wind speed

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. an area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air
  2. Area of low pressure where wind will move towards, associated with cloudy and rainy weather and air that is rising
  3. The way Earth's rotation makes winds in the Northern Hemisphere curve to the right and winds in the Southern Hemisphere curve to the left.
  4. the weight of the air above an object
  5. narrow belt of strong winds that blows near the top of the troposphere across the US

5 True/False questions

  1. Occluded Frontforms when cold air moves under warm air which is less dense and pushes air up

          

  2. isobara boundary between two air masses of different density, moisture, or temperature

          

  3. Highan area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air

          

  4. Air Massthe weight of the air above an object

          

  5. Mercury Barometeran instrument that measure air pressure, An instrument that measures changes in air pressure without using a liquid. Changes in the shape of an airtight metal box cause a needle on the barometer dial to move.
